    The Syncroscan system, a new approach to the problem of centralized traffic control, retains relay coding equipment, with its inherent reliability, for transmitting control information to the field. In addition, it uses an electronic scanning system to provide the speed and capacity necessary to report up-to-the-moment information from hundreds of miles of railroad. View full abstract»

    At present, it is the general practice to apply lightning protective equipment at the terminals of large unit-connected generators. There is a hesitation on the part of industry to omit protective equipment, even though analysis of the problem indicates that no protection is needed. This is primarily because the cost of the added insurance or protective devices is trivial when compared with the in... View full abstract»

    The rehabilitation and the modernization of any organization—industrial, transportation, commercial—is usually of interest. When such an organization is a railroad handling 285,000 passengers per day, its rehabilitation and modernization become a matter of more than usual interest. Such is the case of the Long Island Rail Road which emerged from receivership on August 12, 1954 as a r... View full abstract»

  • An electric speed-torque testing device

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s): 55
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (352 KB)

    The speed-torque characteristics of a motor are established by the design parameters and the quality of the motor components. The speed-torque curve can be used to detect bad design factors and defective construction of a motor. Improper rotor heat treatment, wrong skew, poor slot combination, erratic switching of single-phase motors, and similar conditions are factors which can be recognized. To ... View full abstract»

    The existence of resonant frequency in a vertical motor at or near its running speed is difficult to predict by calculation in many practical applications, especially when formed by the combination of a machine and its coupled load. An actual case of this type of vertical system is illustrated in this article. View full abstract»

    The problem of analyzing simultaneous unbalances which occurs from time to time in otherwise balanced power systems has been given attention by a number of investigators. Methods of analysis which have been proposed and used include direct calculations using appropriate equations.1,5 Generally this approach is rather laborious for a complex system, although with the rapid advances in th...
